Dream Cast - Songs of Everealm Series

UPDATE: Spots have been filled for the Songs (1&2) blog tour! Review copies should be going out to bloggers in the next few days. Please note, the first book is finalized. The second book still has one more run through of proofreading. There may be a few left over errors to catch in book 2 before release. Song of Sovereign is final manuscript. Song of Sparrows is ARC. Thanks!

I've been working on the dream cast for the Songs Series for months now. A few of the characters came easy to me. A few took a loooong time. For instance, Oliver was immediate. I saw a movie trailer and spotted my Oliver and never looked back. But for Cassidy, I poured over Google for the past two months trying to figure out who would make a better fit for his character. Finally, they're all done. Drumroll please...

Sarita

For our magic-loving princess, I chose Virginia (Ginny) Gardner. Her character is 18 at the beginning of the series and ready for adventure! I think Ginny is a great fit for Sarita's independence, yet still has a bit of youthful innocence about her.






Gabrielle

Ksenia Solo was an immediate pick for Gabby. I fell in love with her in Lost Girl and I think Ksenia can easily nail Gabby's spunky attitude and independent nature as a healer and Sarita's bestie.






Cassidy

This one was so difficult. I changed actors at least six times. Cassidy was hard to cast because I couldn't find someone who looked the part and was age appropriate. They were either too young or too old. Technically, John Deluca is a bit too old but can play younger, thankfully. He is definitely the image I see in Cassidy. And I think he could also pull off the king's confident-if-not-a-bit-cocky behavior. Swoon...






Oliver

Brenton Thwaites. Oh, Brenton. I only went to the theater to see Gods of Egypt because he was in the movie. And I loved the movie, by the way. :) He is soooo Oliver. I haven't even thought of anyone else. Oliver is our favorite squire who is both loyal and playful. Perfect combination.

Garrison

Garrison was another that took me a few tries but I finally nailed down Luke Mitchell. Garrison is a bit more mature and proper but still soft around the edges. He is looking for love, maybe in the wrong places. His character becomes more fleshed out in the third book of the series and after.






Asher

Chord Overstreet is my Asher. I can already imagine him as our white-haired wizard. Strangely, most of the photos I have chosen for him have the same haircut as Asher, too, so it's easier to picture him. The mage and Cassidy's best bud has a big role to play in the series as he finds his magical mate may not be what he was expecting. Poor guy... ;)

Calista

This one was pretty easy, too. For Cali, I chose Aimee Teegarden. I've seen this actress in many shows and can confidently say that she is perfect for the role. Calista is a lady whose life will be turned upside down in this series. Like Dahlia in Everealm, Cali will probably be the one who changes the most throughout the story. Wish her luck!

Jolene

Another easy one was Molly Quinn for Jolene. Jolene has spent half of her life in Junacave and the other half with the Sabras. So as you can imagine, Jo has a wild side. We get to see more of her in the second half of the series.







Emery

For Emery, I chose Alexandra Daddario. Emery is a fairy with a mysterious past and miraculous magical abilities. We meet her in Sovereign and I think you'll take to her quickly. She may be naive in many aspects but isn't the least bit shy or afraid of adventure. Perfect companion for our group!






Jake

Matt Lanter is Jake. Or maybe Jake is Matt Lanter. I can't distinguish between the two. I started writing his character with this guy in mind. You might see someone else for Jake but I can't. Our wizard is both witty and humorous. He makes enjoying life a sport! You may wonder why I chose the following gifs but when you get to Song of Sparrows, I think you'll understand. :)

Well, there it is! Let me know if you had someone else in mind the characters. :)

Brenton Thwaites is perfect for Oliver! And Cassidy! I've become very fond of those two; fond of all of them! ♥
